We also provide an extensive DVD library for family viewing, satellite TV and WI-FI internet access. All linens and towels are provided for our guests. There is a screened porch off the dining area for the rainy days or your morning coffee.

Outside, enjoy the lake, dive from the dive platform, hop in the canoe or paddle boat or go fishing. There is a fire pit to make 'Smores and BBQ grill to cook the burgers and dogs.

There is a private dock that will accommodate a boat up to 25 ft, launched at the public launch 1 mile away or for a fee at Cyndi's Dockside on Rte 26.

We purchased our home in 1998 with every intention of living there until we retired and then becoming 'snow birds'. Jobs changed and we were transferred, however, we couldn't let go of our beautiful retreat. We have recently made some enhancements to our home to include satellite TV and WI-FI internet. So, we invite you to relax and enjoy our Maine Lake Retreat on Middle Range Pond as we do every time we go to our home.

The most unique benefit is the solitude. You feel like you are the only one around with the loons.

PERFECTION ON THE LAKE!

  • 5 of 5
A group of us head up to Maine every spring and this year it was my turn to find the lodgings. I honestly thought that this property had to be too-good-to-be-true. I was wrong. With incredible views, enough room to sleep eight comfortably, and a beautifully appointed kitchen, this house could not have been any better. It is secluded, yet not far out of the way and the grounds are spectacular. The owner and the caretaker were more than ready to see to everything we needed and answer any questions we had. It was a wonderful place, a sanctuary feel to it, that we will never forget. Hat water a plenty! Three full bathrooms! Very comfortable beds and plenty of airflow! As for the beauty of the spot, the photographs do not do it justice. This is an idyllic spot and I encourage anyone going to Maine to do their best to secure this house. I was lovely for 8, but would be most perfect for a family of 4-6. Te owner supplies a binder full of every piece of info one would need. Absolutely nothing in this house or in the interest of the guest's convenience is overlooked. Enjoy! We hope to be back!

FABULOUS WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Our family rented this wonderful house for Bates College graduation and could not have been happier.
The house is beautiful and has everything you need, the owner and caretaker were amazing to work with. The lights were on when we arrived late at night, such a nice touch.
Fun day trips and so much to see and do. We will definitely go back

A PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five, with three kids ranging from 8-14, stayed for two weeks at this lovely house, surrounded on three sides by water. This is an away-from-it-all location that requires a 20 minute drive to the nearest grocery store (or the nearest New York Times), but who cares when the place is so great? The house is very well maintained and clean and the small kitchen is well equipped. The furnishings are nice the grounds are beautifully maintained. It's great to have a large flat grassy space, too, which our kids used to play lawn games when they weren't fishing, swimming or asking if they could watch TV (NO!). Really nice, large dining room table. Bathrooms were clean and worked well and the laundry is in the master bedroom off the kitchen, which was a huge convenience.
The lake was delightful for swimming and on one particularly beautiful day four of us spent 5 hours on the swim float, staying out there right through (and forgetting about) lunch. We used the canoe and 5-person paddle boat, and rented kayaks. This is a great boating lake.
Whenever we had a question or issue we were easily able to get it resolved by the wonderful caretaker for the house, who was as charming as he is responsive (along with his lovely family).
We quickly retreated from our city-living ways and found that driving 15 minutes for ice cream in Raymond was a piece of cake and worth the drive (at The Mosquito). It's 30 minutes to a great watersports rental place on Long Lake in Naples, and just 45 minutes to Freeport. Once you've done that, you don't want to do anything except sit on a comfortable lawn chair and look at the view. I suppose if you're into this sort of thing, it would be good to know that it's also 20 minutes from the new casino in the area. As for restaurants, we never went further than Cindy's Dockside, at the other end of the same lake, 5 minutes from the house. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, excellent lobster, hamburgers and sweet potato fries!
We miss it and can't wait to go back!

A PERFECT MAINE LAKE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented the Maine Lake Retreat for 3 weeks. Each week one of our adult children joined us with their two children. So we had kids from 2 to 13 years of age at different times. The place worked for everyone!

The house is comfortable and clean and nicely furnished. The beds have high quality mattresses, important for people like me with bad backs.

The property is the most amazing piece of land on the lake. The lake is incredibly wonderful in good weather but the house is also very comfy on rainy days.

The owners are responsive and helpful and the property manager is friendly and available for any immediate questions that come up.

We loved feeling like we were far away from our daily lives there, but a big, excellent grocery store is a short drive away and the fabulous city of Portland is only a 45 minute drive. In the other direction are wonderful mountains for hiking.

I recommend Maine Lake Retreat without reservation, although I would rather keep it all for myself!

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We have just completed another delightful week on beautiful Range Pond. Lynne's home and grounds were spotless and inviting. Everything you need is provided except for food and drink. If any problems or questions arise, Mike, the caretaker, takes care of them in short order.

Our activities centered on the water for most of the week. Having our boat docked right there made fishing and boating easy and convenient. The fishing is great! Our grandson caught his first bass, a three pound largemouth and memories to last a lifetime. All four grandsons, ages 8-12, were swimming or paddling the new paddleboat every day. The parents, grandparents and great-grandmother enjoyed watching while sitting near the water on the many lawn chairs.

The home is marvelous and we are already looking forward to next year. Thanks Lynne and Jerry.

Ann, Ken and Family
